Cherry End Grain Bowl

Cherry End Grain Bowl with Turquoise | 6.5" x 15" | #466

Wood turning requires and utilizes many different techniques; end grain means the tree (once vertical) is now horizontal to the bed of the turner's lathe. The result is this charming cherry end grain bowl! The more you know about the process the easier it becomes to see the passion of the artist and to love his output and outcomes. The tones are delightful and the turning must have been… a pleasure and labor of love. Totally utilitarian and waiting for its next assignment… come and get it.

P.S. Here, the cherry on top is turquoise. Oh my, how wonderful!

All my bowls and vessels are made from recycled wood. This is wood from a tree that was cut down by a homeowner for safety reasons, by a builder in order to facilitate construction of a new home or was blown down by Mother Nature. This wood would have ended up in the city landfill or someone’s fireplace. Much of my wood I find on the side of the road waiting for the trash pickup.

None of my bowls are perfect because they were made from imperfect wood by imperfect hands however, I make up for their imperfection by adding a little magic to each one. Beyond their beautiful appearance, each of my bowls/vessels has the added benefit of being able to hold your worries and fears. So by placing your worries and fears in your bowl, you are better able to focus on the blessings in life.

I hope you enjoy your bowl as much as I did in making it for you.
